Welcome to a very new look Agency of the Year Awards.

It’s amazing to look back on the past nine (yes, nine) years to see how far the awards have come. What started as an initiative to unearth Hong Kong’s best-of-breed agency operations has grown into one of the industry’s key events for rewarding agency excellence.

Tonight we are expecting a total of 640 people, a record for the Hong Kong awards. Our advice, arrive early!
